Volunteer paramedics will get a new ambulance station as part of a 130-home development in Stamford Hill.
Hackney’s cabinet members agreed plans for the Tower Court Estate by Clapton Common last night that will see Hatzola take over a two-storey building on site.
The charity, which responds to accidents in the Stamford Hill area, will move from its current base in Rookwood Road to the new state-of-the-art headquarters.
Trustee Yanky Sorotzkin, said: “We welcome this exciting opportunity presented to us by Hackney Council for the development and growth of Hatzola.
“We look forward to working in larger and improved facilities, which will have a wide-ranging impact on the services we deliver for the community.”

The development includes some large family homes for social rent. The town hall spoke at length with households from the Haredi and other communities in the area to ensure the new homes would be suitable for families from all backgrounds.
Hackney mayor Philip Glanville, said: “Regeneration is about more than just new bricks and mortar, and partnering with local residents and organisations like this helps make sure that the thousands of much-needed new homes we’re building are rooted in their community.
